Kiruna, Sweden’s northernmost town, is most often used as a base or starting point for travel around Lapland. Most travellers visit to see the northern lights in Abisko, around 62 miles north of Kiruna. Daily buses run direct from the airport in Kiruna to Abisko as well as to other Swedish towns (Björkliden and Riksgränsen) and Narvik in Norway.
Kiruna Airport is the only airport serving the city and the northernmost airport in the country. This small airport, which serves less than 200,000 passengers per year, is around 6 miles outside of Kiruna city centre. Despite its size, it does have a restaurant, souvenir shop, lockers and WiFi. A well-connected bus system gets arriving passengers where they need to go, be that downtown Kiruna or a Lapland resort.
There are currently no direct flights from the United Kingdom to Kiruna. Two airlines offer connecting flights with stopovers in Stockholm: Scandinavian Airlines and Norwegian Airlines. Flights from the UK to Stockholm take around two and a half hours, while flights from Stockholm to Kiruna take around one and a half hours. However, total flight time varies depending on layover time and departure airport choice.
Since Kiruna is such a remote destination in Sweden, plane travel is usually the ideal way to get there. Flights from the UK to Kiruna only require one transfer (often in Stockholm) as opposed to trains which require multiple transfers in Belgium, Germany, Denmark and Sweden. On top of that, the airport is conveniently located in the city and well served by buses. These buses travel to a variety of destinations, including Kiruna city centre itself, the aurora-spotting town of Abisko and other resorts in the area.
The best way to get from Kiruna to a final destination in Lapland is via the frequent buses from the airport. Kiruna also has its own bus system for travellers intending to stay in the city. While Kiruna is rarely a traveller’s main destination, there are still several things to do in the area. Mining is a big part of Kiruna history, and visitors can tour the LKAB mine to learn more about it. Another way to explore the culture is to visit the Nutti Sami Siida Reindeer Farm.
Malmo is the third largest city in Sweden and has seen an influx of tourism over the course of the 21st century. This is largely due to the opening of the Oresund Bridge connecting with Denmark.

Throughout its history, Malmo has been an important business and trading destination, but grew in importance as a visitor location with the improved transport links over the Oresund Strait that separates southern Sweden and Denmark. A man-made beach that lies to the south west of Malmo harbour has seen Ribersborg beach become known as the Copacabana of Malmo. With almost 17 hours of mid Summer sunshine, the beach has become an important destination for residents and visitors in the Summer months.
The city also takes in a variety of architectural sights, from modern buildings to gothic brick buildings dating back as far as the 1300s. One of the most important of these is Sankt Petri Church built in a 14th century Baltic brick style.
